Copeland's School Improvement Plans have typically focused on math and reading. The two goals for 2015-2016 focus on improving reading and math achievement through maximizing student engagement and learning opportunities by utilizing a continuum of technology resources that promote 21st century learning and align with the Common Core Standards and effectively establishing and sharing common ways to provide opportunities for students to demonstrate their knowledge extends beyond standards via challenging opportunities and activities that foster self-directed learning and collaboration.
Formal and informal assessments in Copeland classrooms guide instruction and learning and provide feedback to students, teachers, and parents. Our true focus is on student growth and improvement and preparing our students for success through the Applications of Learning.
